Why are there lots of girls in environmental engineering?

I would think girls thought wastewater plants, tending to landfills, etc were gross.

    Well, first, you're generalizing about girls. Girls may be all "sugar and spice and everything nice", but not all girls are grossed out by "dirty" things.

    Secondly, engineering, especially environmental engineering, is a highly-desired degree/profession. Engineering used to be predominantly male, like most of science and math, though not so much anymore.

    Plus, there is a lot more to environmental engineering than landfills and wastewater treatment plants.
